Hey everyone!Ya’ll! I am the worst blogger EVER. I am so sorry to have gone AWOL on ya’ll. Between school, doing freelance PR, keeping our house semi-running, semi-keeping up with the craziest toddler ever, family events, and being just plain exhausted from Baby #2, I just honestly haven’t had a second to spare. I will say, I’ve been super blessed to have had a much easier pregnancy this time around than I did with Anissa- although I’m not 100% sure if it’s actually any easier, or if I just know what’s going on now so every little thing doesn’t freak me out this time. And although it’s been easier, I’ve definitely been more tired this time around, most likely thanks to Miss Crazy Pants.
So, how’s this pregnancy really going? Well, I’m not swollen as much this time, so that’s great. I’m way over any morning sickness and my appetite is huge. I feel like I’m carrying a basketball under my shirt, and I still have at least 15 weeks to go! Baby boy is moving all over the place, and I’m loving it! Besides being tired, no complaints at all! Even the heartburn I was having has subsided. This may just be a good boy after all 😉
Here’s the one and only recent picture I have, from 22 weeks!
23 Week Bump Date!
How far along: 23 weeks
Gender: It’s a BOY!!
Weight gain: 18 pounds
Maternity clothes: Mostly maternity but still able to wear a few non-maternity shirts and skirts
Stretch marks: No
Belly button in or out: In, but flat, like it could pop any time.
Sleep: Great so far, when Anissa let’s me!
Best moment this week: Feeling him squirm and move all over the place.
Miss anything: A big ole glass o’ wine.
Cravings: ALL THE FOOD, ALL DAY LONG
Rings on or off: On, but getting stuck as my fingers fatten up
Queasy or sick: Nope!
Looking forward to: Our baby shower in a few weeks, and V-Day (Viability Day) in just 5 short days 🙂
I think my next post is going to be a comparison of pregnancy fears with #1 and #2, and how that’s changed. I’ve been thinking a lot about how worried I was about some things last time that I’m not worried about at all now, and now I have new worries that would have never crossed my mind before. Should be a fun post! See ya’ll soon!
